History of RAV4 Transmission Problems

In 2006 Toyota acknowledged problems with RAV4 automatic transmissions exhibiting harsh shifting conditions and/or stored diagnostic trouble codes P0750, P0753, PO755, P0758, and P1760. Toyota then released a RAV4 technical service bulletin calling for the replacement of the ECM. Unfortunately, most vehicles were outside of their warranty period by this time costing owners any where between $800 - $1000 dollars.


The P0750 Shift Solenoid diagnostic trouble code (DTC) as well as P0753, P0755, P0758, P0770 and/or P1760 codes are most commonly set off by a failure of the ECM. There is a small chance that the actual transmission is faulty; however, chances are your problems are the result of a bad Engine Control Module (ECM). Below is a short description for each of the diagnostic trouble codes as well as a link to the official Toyota RAV4 technical service bulletin.
  • P0750 – Shift Solenoid “A” Malfunction
  • P0753 – Shift Solenoid “A” Electrical Malfunction
  • P0755 – Shift Solenoid “B” Malfunction
  • P0758 – Shift Solenoid “B” Electrical Malfunction
  • P0770 – Shift Solenoid “E” Malfunction
  • P1760 – Linear Solenoid for Line Pressure Control Circuit Malfunction
